    I'm basically looking for a light blue bumper for iphone 4, but I want it to be as plastic smooth as possible, but I also want it to be compatible with my zagg invisibleshield.

    I'm also looking for carbon fiber and/or cool looking sticker-like skins that would work on top of the invisible shield and the bumper.


    Thoughts?

    I'm not sure if Gong-wei is still selling them
    but about 5 people recommend this ebay knockoff and its awesome for 10 bucks !

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390241049141

    a few differences

    + Harder rubber, harder plastic = feels more solid in the hand.
    + More snug around iPhone

    - The buttons are more plastic than metal feeling
    - Case is a bit thicker than the original ( by like .5mm hardly noticable)

    Well worth the money

    Nice choice, I think eBay offers for these things are really great.

    just a note, my ebay bumper has a small crack where the sleep button is. you get what you pay for i guess, but i'll probably just buy it again on ebay. can't go wrong for that price.

    I had the Scosche BandEdge (same as Casmate Hulu) and now have an Apple bumper knockoff from Gong Wei on ebay, and I must say I'm much happier with it, mainly due to the ease of pressing the power/volume buttons.
